If I'm going to be riding to and from work in the rain

I'm going to have to get some rain gear. Because biking for 45 mins in the rain in rolled up jeans is not practical!

Although I have to admit there is something about riding in the rain and getting soaked that made me feel like big kid. I'm pretty sure I was smiling the whole way home. :-)

And that's basically all I have to say about that so Mum and Mom in law, you can stop reading now.

Ok, now that they have stopped reading, I have got to get my brakes fixed. The back brake didn't work at all and the front brake was only just with a lot of squeaking and juddering. What's the deal with that? Brakes should work in the rain yes?

Ok, so moms, you probably did read that. kidding! I totally would never ride my bike if the brakes didn't work!! Who would do that? Not me that's for sure!

(seriously though peeps - what could the problem be - cable? pads?)

Definitely take your bike to a shop/good mechanic. You will probably need the pads replaced. Also have them check the brake cables. I snapped one while riding last year. Not fun!

Hey anonymous,

Good call. Hubby worked on my bike this weekend and the brakes are back to normal thanks to some wd40. But the back brake has never been great - I'm going to get a professional to take a look at it. Happy cycling! :)
